Tehran: Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani has condemned US authorities for violently suppressing protests of pro-Palestinian students across country, Al Jazeera reported.

He wrote on X, “Move of US government authorities to distort truth and describe genuine student and academic anger and protests as anti-semitism, in order to justify and use of violent suppression tools to silence peaceful protests and gatherings of pro-Palestine students, does not diminish ugliness of their actions.

“Significant number of Jewish people, including Jewish students, have declared their disgust with hateful crimes of Zionist regime and US government’s shameful support for regime.”

He added that “Mask of hypocrisy” has been removed “From faces of false defenders of freedom of speech and human rights”.

Meanwhile, UK has imposed sanctions on two “Extremist” groups and four individuals in Israel who it blamed for violence in West Bank, Reuters reported.

UK Foreign Office named Hilltop Youth and Lehava as two groups which it said were known to have supported, incited and promoted violence against Palestinian communities in West Bank. Four individuals sanctioned were responsible for human rights abuses against these communities, statement added.

Among them are Noam Federman, who has trained settler groups in committing violence and Elisha Yered, who has justified killing Palestinians on religious grounds.

British Foreign Minister David Cameron said extremist settlers were undermining security and stability and threatening prospects for peace.
